Full time Office and Administrative Support

Job Description

Salad and Go ("S&G") is on a mission to disrupt the fast-food industry by making fresh, nutritious food convenient and affordable for ALL. We operate small drive-thru-only locations and serve an intentionally simplified and streamlined menu to enable operational efficiencies that allow the company to offer the lowest possible prices to guests.

S&G currently operates 52+ restaurants located across Arizona and Dallas with additional stores opening weekly, including entry into several new markets this year. We are equipped to be the category leader in the healthy QSR vertical through our leading product, simple operations, and strong unit financials.

We are also a "for good" company. This philosophy has informed our strategy of maintaining low prices for the consumer to increase accessibility, raising team member wages, and most importantly, giving back to the community in a big way. Since April 2020, S&G has donated roughly 4,000 salads per week to non-profit organizations that fight hunger and homelessness.

Position Summary:

Fresh and affordable can't happen without a high performing Supply Chain team. Establishing and enforcing a system of high-quality processes and ingredients allows us to provide affordable, organic, ready-to-eat food in compliance with appropriate laws and standards. And we have some pretty high standards.
